Disney heir Bob Iger made a strong 1st visual impression as he visited the mega media company’s booth Tues. The man’s tall and has the good looks of a movie star; he’s impeccably dressed and coiffed. Oh, and he said a few things: he’ll let sr managers run their businesses, including Anne Sweeney and George Bodenheimer; he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of hiring a COO (he becomes CEO Oct 1); he’s got no intention of dividing the company as Viacom might; he’s not a fan of regulating decency, but if legislation comes he’d like it to be "reasonable," applying similar standards to broadcast and cable, since people don’t watch broadcast or cable, they watch TV. His priorities? Excel at platform- agnostic content creation and applying technology and grow globally.
